Filmmaker Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies) returns to the podcast for his third visit to discuss his latest film, Happy Christmas. The comedy starring Swanberg, Ann Kendrick, Melanie Linskey & Lena Dunham, is currently available on demand and begins its theatrical ripple Friday, July 25th. The synopsis: when Jenny (Kendrick), a hard-partying 20-something, moves in with her film director brother (Swanberg), his wife Kelly (Lynskey), a budding novelist, and their two-year-old son after a break up, the family’s idyllic life is shaken up. Jenny begins a rocky relationship with a baby sitter-cum-pot dealer (Mark Webber) and she and a friend Carson (Dunham) team up to try and help Kelly find balance in her life.

This episode of Filmwax Radio is sponsored by Fandor where you can currently which four of Swanberg’s films including The Zone, Silver Bullets, Art History, and All The Light In The Sky.
